In the wake of the deadly Florida high school shooting last week, President Donald Trump has urged a ban on gun devices like so-called bump stocks.

Vice President Mike Pence, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky joined Trump at the event, as well as dozens of parents and survivors of the Florida shooting and the 2012 Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) was not impressed with Trump's move, either, according to the Times.

He spoke with Republican Senator John Cornyn about a bipartisan bill that seeks to improve the checks in place before someone can buy a gun. The legislation calls for a system of incentives and penalties to encourage government entities throughout the United States to report information about people with mental health issues or criminal backgrounds.

Trump, who received an endorsement from the National Rifle Association in 2016, insisted there would be a change; however, it's unclear what kind of changes he'll pursue.

When ATF began the process of considering a bump stock regulation in December, the proposal drew more than 35,000 comments from the public, far more than usual, which signals that likely either pro- or anti-gun control groups - or both - mobilized their membership and email lists to weigh in. Friday, Trump is scheduled to speak to the Conservative Political Action Conference, a group for which gun rights are a top issue.
